Edward Snowden
Whistleblower
CSPAN 12/31/2013
Brawner: Snowden appeared in a televised Christmas message released to the British public by TV station Channel 4. Here is what he had to say. Snowden: Recently, we learned that our governments, working in concert, have created a system of worldwide mass surveillance, watching everything we do. Great Britain’s George Orwell warned us of the danger of this kind of information. The types of collection in the book, microphones, video cameras, tvs that watch us, are nothing compared to what we have available today. We have sensors in our pockets that track us everywhere we go. Think about what this means for the privacy of the average person. A child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy at all.
Edward Snowden
Whistleblower
CSPAN 12/31/2013
Snowden: They’ll never know what it means to have a private moment to themselves, an unrecorded, unanalyzed thought. And that’s a problem because privacy matters. Privacy is what allows us to determine who we are and who we want to be. The conversation occurring today will determine the amount of trust we can place both in the technology that surround us, and the government that regulates it. Together, we can find a better balance, end mass surveillance, and remind the government, that if it really want to know how we feel, asking is always cheaper than spying. Brawner: Edward Snowden on December 25th released that Christmas message to the British public by TV station Channel 4.
